Hello Hello!!

Hey, All @ 09:51 am

peachy_ewan_muf:
I'm currently feelin: curious curious

I was just wondering. . . I have a GA ticket and I was wondering at what time should I get there, to insure I have a close spot? I'm very short (five feet tall), so being close is especially important to me. . . Otherwise, I see absolutely nothing. :/

People keep telling me that since U2 is so famous, I should get in line as soon as I get into town (which should be nine or ten at night the night before), but is this necessary? How enthusiastic are U2 fans nowadays? What time would be a good idea to go?

If it helps, I'm seeing them in Las Vegas next (not this) Friday.

I went to the DC show and I got there by 2 pm or so. I was number 631 and when they let us in, I got a spot next to the outer rail, so no one was blocking my view. I'm 5'3" btw. I would say 10 am the day of the concert - 2 pm would be a good time to go. I don't think the night before is necessary (although there were people who showed up that early because they wanted to be the first people inside the stadium).

I didn't get in until after 6:30pm because my friend showed up late and I had her ticket, I'm pretty tall, but my friend is probably closer to your height and she could see just fine. We had a really nice spot. *maybe* 8 or 9 rows from the front, but it honestly seemed closer than that.

The stadium was sold out, but it didn't seem that necessary to get there too early.

Night before isn't necessary. 5a-6a probably ideal if you definitely want rail, though you could likely get there later and get a spot as well.

so i'm sure it varies by location, but for me we got there around 3:00pm day of, then when entering the stage got kind of confused about where to go (they had the area you had to go through to get right by the stage labeled "red zone entrance" and i thought they meant red zone only entrance) but still managed to get 3 people back from the stage off to the side where edge was. I can say it was much more crowded in the center of the stage and we wouldn't have been as close. I'm 5'4" and being that close since the stage was elevated you could still see pretty well in front of you, even though it was a bit harder on the side views (which of course was where bono was). That being said I think if we were right on the rail the height of the stage would have been annoying.

So in other words if you want to be front and center the night before is probably your best bet, but you can still get a pretty good spot if you go the afternoon of.

I got in line around 11am for 2 shows and 8:30am for 1 show and was pretty much in the same spot for all 3 shows. In the front, along the outside rail. I wasn't against the rail but there was only one "row" of people infront of me.

It's really unnecessary to get in line the night before. It's a stadium....it holds a lot of people. Anytime in the morning/ early afternoon the day of the show is fine. You should be close.
